1518 Current Plans to consider

            (i)DC/08/02137/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Erecting of single storey extension at side and rear, porch to front, increase ridge height at accommodate first floor and re-roofing of house and erection of greenhouse at 4 Little Wold Lane, South Cave for Mr R Warner. Cllr Mrs Turner proposed that the Parish Council would recommend refusal as the application would, by such alteration of the roof line and gable, have a detrimental impact on the street scene; the design is out of character with the area, and there is potential overlooking and loss of privacy from the proposed balcony and to the neighbouring property at No. 6 Little Wold Lane; and that the Parish Council would also question the quality and accuracy of the plans, in particular the scaling of the drawings to roof heights etc with a further query raised regarding the greenhouse dimensions; location within the site, and its eventual use, seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.
Cllrs Lenton and Mrs Manley declared a personal interest in the following application. A member of the public addressed the Council raising objections to the proposal.

(ii)DC/08/02488/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

Erection of first floor extension incorporating 8 no. dormer windows, single storey extension to front and attached double garage to side at Fairways Farm, Northfield Close for Dr Suri






Cllr Lenton proposed that the Parish Council recommend refusal as it is overdevelopment of a site that was a dwelling for a small agricultural tenancy that is located without the development limit of the settlement; due to the dominance and massing of the proposal, there will be a detrimental effect on the street scene, and the open aspect of this location; the Council  would also advise that it is out of character with the area, which is located adjacent to the Conservation Area; concerns were raised over the amount of traffic, (the proposed number of garages/parking); questions were raised over the legality of this application regarding the agricultural tenancy, and that Council  would recommend a residential (not business) usage condition if the proposal was permitted; and that the Council feels strongly regarding this application, and would request that this application be put to the Planning Committee if the officer is minded to recommend to the contrary, seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.

            (iii)DC/08/02998/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission

            Erecting single storey extension to side at 52 The Stray, South Cave for Mr and Mrs Grant. Cllr Mrs Manley proposed that the Parish Council raise no objection to this application as it has no adverse effect on the property, neighbouring properties or the street scene, seconded Cllr Lenton, All in favour.

            Cllr Lenton declared a prejudicial interest in the following item, did not use para 12(2) of the Code of Conduct and left the room for the discussion and the vote.

            (iv)DC/08/03104/PLF/WESTES – Full Planning Permission.

    Erection of boundary gates at front at 85 The Stray, South Cave, for Mr Berry. Cllr Mrs Barnett proposed that that whilst the Parish Council has no objection in principal to the gates, concerns were raised about the possibility of drainage problems if further hard standing becomes necessary to be able to fully utilise the gates, seconded Cllr Kelly, All in favour.

1519   Trees


            (i)App No 5939 (TPO) – prune trees at 8, 9, 10 and 11 The Limes– permission granted.


(i)TPO (South Cave No. 39) – 2 Cleaves Avenue – confirmed


1520  Other Parish Council Matters

(i)Councillors considered the proposed disabled persons parking place – 79 Market Place, South Cave (HSBC) with Cllr  Mrs Barnett proposing that the Parish Council would raise strong objections to this proposal, as there is already a disabled parking bay on Market Place, and a disabled bay in the public car park close to  Market Place;  there has been a reduction in the number of parking bays within this service centre, and any more losses of  parking would have an impact on the businesses;  there is parking available, even on double yellow lines, if in possession of a disabled sticker, and this can be used on Market Place without causing an obstruction; would also comment that there is very little policing these bays in  any event, seconded Cllr Turner, All in favour.

(ii)Cllr Harrison proposed that Cllr Mrs Manley and the Clerk attend the Yorkshire Day Service – 1st August 2008 at Hedon as representatives of the Council, seconded Cllr Mrs Turner, All in favour.

(iii)The Committee considered attendance at the ERNLLCA District Meeting – 16th July at South Cave Family Centre, Cllrs Harrison, Kelly and Mrs Barnett and the Clerk are to attend.
